Daily Record accurate as usual (NOT)

They report that Celtic "have started negotiations with Udinese for transfer of Stephen Welsh at £1.5m"
I presume that is for his big toe.


1.) 09 Jan 2022 21:14:51
I'd sell him first no bad offer that came in, he's not good enough.

2.) 09 Jan 2022 21:36:38
Stephen Welsh is a great player at 21 years old and he will continue to get better.
He always has over 90 percent passing accuracy.
What’s the point in bringing our players through our youth system and then sell our best young players at the first opportunity.

{Ed007's Note - ????

3.) 09 Jan 2022 21:40:00
Celtic are also really struggling for homegrown players for UEFA competitions. We will really struggle to find 4HG and 4 AT players for next season if we let Welsh go. Well, players of a decent enough level.

4.) 10 Jan 2022 07:37:54
He's good enough all right personally prefer him to starfelt.

5.) 10 Jan 2022 13:54:37
Mally completely agree. I like starfelt but he is still making the same mistakes over and over whereas Welsh is learning from his and becoming a better player each game he plays. Welsh needs to be kept I'll be disappointed if he is sold or even loaned out.

6.) 10 Jan 2022 14:50:17
I would rather have Welsh than Starfelt to be honest.

7.) 10 Jan 2022 15:53:07
Tony been saying it to work mates for ages that Welsh for me is the better player, might not have the experience as starfelt but he seems far more comfortable with the way Ange wants to play.

8.) 11 Jan 2022 21:33:29
We need better than both Welsh and especially Sterfelt. Neither is good enough if we really want to improve. If we are offered £5m with add ons and sell on then I would take it for Welsh. £1.5m is a joke. I was hoping our Iranian interest was a CB.



28 Dec 2021 17:42:49
Buzz I read your post earlier where you expressed concern about Ange not giving players a break.
Just read on a Celtic site he has given whole squad week off, players will return to Lennoxtown Monday 3rd January and then training will resume, Ange knows players need time to recover, so a weeks rest, no travelling then back down to business sounds good to me.




13 Dec 2021 10:20:53
As most know on here I, like many others, are not the Celtic Board's biggest fan, they treat us fans with contempt at times which comes from Dermot Desmond down to Bankier etc
BUT if the rumours are true, and I believe them, our Board are working hard to get the 3 Japanese players signed as soon after January 1st as possible, stories even of applying for work permits and well advanced with the paperwork.
So if we get these players signed coupled with the players Celtic signed in the summer that will be 15 new players our Board will have sanctioned.
So a big WELL DONE to the Board.


1.) 13 Dec 2021 12:47:45
The board also backed Lennon last season by keeping our best players and buying a few ( duds ) but the problem was too many players only had 2 years left on their contracts and they expected to be moved on.
I don’t know who was to blame for that but it was a schoolboy error and it caused unrest in the dressing room.
I don’t know why the Celtic board constantly refuse a meeting with the Green Brigade and other Celtic groups
It’s only a meeting and it would ease the frustrations from the Green Brigade Etc.



19 Aug 2021 13:20:14
For the ahem more mature punters on here who remember seeing Johan Cruyff
play he has a namesake horse running the
3.00pm York Cruyff's Turn 22/ 1 with Sly paying 7 places or .
Bet365 Each Way Extra 12/ 1 at TEN places.


1.) 19 Aug 2021 13:53:46
Surprised you missed (wee Fergus) Mr. McCann 11/ 1 in the 4.10 York, Tim.

2.) 19 Aug 2021 14:09:21
I had zaim claudette in 150 kortier in 2.25 baashin 3.00 and a rank outsider Highland panic in 4.10 lucky 15 ew.

3.) 19 Aug 2021 15:06:37
Some shout Tim. Tipping a 25/ 1 winner take some doing. Brilliant!

4.) 19 Aug 2021 15:21:37
Well done mate put a fiver each way do me well.

5.) 19 Aug 2021 16:00:34
Yup me too. That will keep the Mrs happy 🤣.

6.) 19 Aug 2021 16:15:58
Great shout Tim, you are still the number 1 tipster 👍.



18 Aug 2021 15:27:00
According to reports the Greek forward wants about £11 - £15k per week surely not a problem for Celtic.


1.) 18 Aug 2021 15:55:39
That’s good Tim and Juranovic has agreed personal terms.
If we get the young Irish lad from Shamrock Rovers, we will have extra cover for left back and the left side of Centre Back.
If Christie decides to leave, Celtic could make a move for Lovric.
That would leave Celtic with a proper squad.

2.) 18 Aug 2021 15:56:39
I'm sure if we manage to offload two or three - even if it's only off the wage bill - then we can budget for the players Ange really wants?

3.) 18 Aug 2021 16:13:46
U would hope so timalloy. Well within celtic price range.

4.) 18 Aug 2021 17:36:42
Lovric would be some signing Buzz. Im sure Someone had posted a while ago that Lovric was coming at the end of the month🙏If we get a CH cover for LB and a striker this would be great as I reckoned it would take about 2 windows trying to get players in and gel quickly.

5.) 18 Aug 2021 18:23:15
Did Celtic say they would pay an extra million for Lovric, if his club waits to see what European destination Celtic end up in?

6.) 18 Aug 2021 18:53:34
Totally agree bhoys.

If we sign Juranovic, Scales and Giorgious this will have been a very good window and this team should be strong enough to win the league (there, I've said it) 👍.

7.) 18 Aug 2021 22:05:31
I think out of the 2 position we need a LW over a striker even if eddy leaves . I would be more than happy with Kyogo as main striker but Forrest out on the left just doesn’t work and Kyogo going there we lose that central press although Christie is decent there but we don’t know what’s happening long or even short term with him.

8.) 19 Aug 2021 00:39:29
I really hope so Buzz. Qualify and hopefully he becomes part of something special.

9.) 19 Aug 2021 07:09:10
I seriously doubt Lovric is coming. It will. be l8ke all the rest who were com8ng and never did. Love it t o happen but it wont. Its defenders we need as a priority. A CB and two full backs. We need that more, much more.

Guys the "constructive SFA talks" have already paid dividends with one of their own referees not getting picked for SPFL games on Sevco say so.
But we all know the REAL REASON for their SFA talks is the Derby game in February, the officials have all been warned NOT to give Celtic anything, they are getting worried we are closing the points gap and will resort to any underhand trick to gain an advantage.


{Ed007's Note - If you're talking about Clancy, Tim the refs for this midweek round of fixtures were appointed before the Aberdeen v TRIFC match.}

1.) 24 Jan 2022 12:21:40
Referee supervisor Crawford Allen doesn’t help himself, when he confirms the referee for the Glasgow Derby and then changes his mind.
Why did he do that and Why No explanation to the change.
On the SPFL website it’s still showing Bobby Madden will referee the Glasgow Derby on January 2nd.
The Glasgow Derby appointment will get confirmed before lunchtime tomorrow, along with the referee appointments for this weekend.
Basically we will know soon if Clancy has been dropped for Premiership games this weekend and next midweek.
I believe Crawford Allen has got to back Clancy, the way John Fleming refused to back Willie Collum back in 2019.

2.) 24 Jan 2022 13:02:23
ED007 and Buzz I believe Hibs and I think Motherwell asked for a meeting with Mr Allen and basically were told there was no mechanism to grant such a face to face meeting yet Sevco were granted one immediately. There are rumours that Ian Bankier is "working behind the scenes" whatever that means, with the SFA, whereas Sevco make sure e everyone and their dog knows when they meet with SFA, it is about time our Board went about things more directly also.

{Ed007's Note - When did that happen with Hibs and Motherwell?}

3.) 24 Jan 2022 13:57:17
ED007 your Irish friend with the 3 names mentioned it on his site.

{Ed007's Note - Oh well, it must be true then ?‍♂️

4.) 24 Jan 2022 15:42:16
Just for sh*ts and giggles - what if there is no conspiracy lads? Or have I just started one?

5.) 24 Jan 2022 16:36:42
I find it funny that the Sevco directors have severely overreacted because it shows they are struggling to handle the pressure.

6.) 24 Jan 2022 16:39:27
It was the Scottish media rag The Daily Rectum who tried to make out that sevco had achieved some form of justice to appeal to the bottom dwellers A Red card and a sending off had them writing letters Could you imagine the outcry if 3 of their players being injured then taken off due to thuggish tackles? I have seen about 5 or 6 straight red card tackles yet not 1 was sent off. If some of our players stood upto it and dished it back out it's a certainty they would be red carded.

7.) 25 Jan 2022 00:32:47
Buzz I don't come on often reason being you guys always blame the referee, grow balls, every team get decisions against them, move on .

{Ed007's Note - So out of everything we talk about on here you don't get involved because some posters talk about refs? Sorry we're not meeting your standards, maybe start threads about what you do want to talk about.
There's not many Celtic forums not talking about refereeing performances over the last few days so I hope you're saying the same on them.}

Saturday's Horse Tips

Haydock 2.35 Lake View Lad 20/ 1 (Sly go 4 places in a 10 runner field)
Ascot 2.55 Killer Clown 16/ 1 (Sly go 4 places in 11 runner field)
I am hoping for decent each way returns

With the sad news about Meatloaf
THIS horse must be backed today, as these coincidences appear to come up often
Ascot 2.20 AnythingforLove 11/ 2

PS for the Sevconians tuning in this post is going up at 10.05 AM (Morning that is sevvies)
To check the odds simply go to Sly pages online and you can verify these odds instantly, hope that wee tip helps.


1.) 22 Jan 2022 12:42:51
Tim, I hope you're not continuing to bet with slybet after they removed your best Odds Guaranteed? They are cnts mate. Reduced my bests to about £20 liability after I won a few times. I've only kept the account open so I can watch re-runs of the racing on sporting life.
The rest aren't any better but I found bet365 to be the fairest.
Good luck.

2.) 22 Jan 2022 13:22:58
@Pod1 yes Sly are terrible for customer service and removing the best odds guarantee is P00
Bet365 and BetFair are not too bad.



19 Jan 2022 13:22:16
I WAS enjoying basking in our win and them dropping points until I looked at our fixtures for end January and then in February.
We are at Tynecastle end January then we have Motherwell, Aberdeen and Hibs ALL AWAY February, in between we have Sevco at Celtic Park.
It would be some going but if we took all 15 points what a boost that would do our title chances.


1.) 19 Jan 2022 13:26:58
Tough schedule but that's why you need a squad, people saying g the other week we've got too many players and with internationally can never have enough good players, and well need them all.

2.) 19 Jan 2022 13:35:57
Celtic will play all of the clubs in the top 6 away from home before the split.
Sevco will play them all at home.
After the split the SPFL will then need to decide which club Celtic will be forced to visit for a 3rd time this season and that same club will be forced to visit Ibrox for a 3rd time this season.

3.) 19 Jan 2022 13:43:58
How's that fair.

4.) 19 Jan 2022 13:47:46
We'll always have a run of matches, whether home or away, at points during the season, that will be regarded as 'tough'games.

We now have a squad of players, not yet complete, but more than capable of continuing our winning run and taking this league title back to CP.

Ange has practically single handedly turned round our first team squad in less than 2 transfer windows and has us playing attractive, attacking, winning football - playing the Celtic way.

I'm looking forward to these games with confidence and I think things are coming together at just the right time.

Time will tell.

☘ ? ☘ ? ☘.

5.) 19 Jan 2022 14:07:50
Buzz, I can see it being hearts away 3 times this year for us.

6.) 19 Jan 2022 14:37:53
That would be rubbing salt into our wounds Pk85.
Considering Celtic should’ve been playing Dundee twice away before the split and Not Hearts.
If the SPFL done the above, there would be no problems and nobody would have to visit the same club for a 3rd time.
Basically the SPFL fudged up the fixture list to suit one club.

7.) 19 Jan 2022 15:31:58
Buzz, how often have the ibrox team had this advantage in recent years?

8.) 19 Jan 2022 16:32:49
Since Sevco have played with the big boys from the 2016/ 17 season,
Both Celtic and Sevco haven’t been forced to play the same club 3 times at home or away in the same season.
In 2017/ 18 season both St, Mirren and Livingston were promoted from the Championship.
We can all agree that it didn’t matter who we played away from home twice before the split because both clubs weren’t expected to reach the top 6 in the 2018/ 19 season.
This season however, we can all agree again that Hearts were fancied to reach the top 6 and Dundee had very little chance of achieving a top 6 place.
So why did the SPFL have Celtic playing Hearts twice away before the split because it now looks a certainty that Celtic will need to visit a top 6 club for a 3rd time this season and Sevco will play that same club at Ibrox for a 3rd time this season.
If the SPFL had Celtic visiting Dens Park twice before the split, there wouldn’t be any problems and an unfair advantage to Sevco OR an a unfair Disadvantage to Celtic.

9.) 19 Jan 2022 17:34:31
Never, ever liked the split . I know it was supposed to introduce a bit of drama towards the end of the season, but does it really do that? Maybe in the relegation battle, but not at the top (my opinion) . Maybe it time to go back to the old days. Something like 18 teams in the top flight, play home and away, 34 games in all. Maybe the top teams want the revenue the extra home games provide, (ie a third old firm game) but it ( (the fixture list) is open to unfairly favouring one team over another as Buzz has pointed out. The old way was at least a level playing field. ?.



18 Jan 2022 18:43:30
Buzz as our Guru on statistics, do you know how the Sly TV contract works.
I thought the contract stipulated that both Celtic and Sevco had to be shown an EQUAL amount of times, but Sly seem to be showing Sevco more.
Can Celtic insist on our games being shown live in equal amount to the sevvies.


1.) 18 Jan 2022 19:57:25
Ahh, you know the answer Tim, bin SLY ?.

☘ ? ☘ ? ☘.

2.) 18 Jan 2022 20:37:54
Basically Tim sky have Scottish Football by the haw maws so do whatever they like.

3.) 18 Jan 2022 21:54:05
Sky can only show a maximum of 5 home league games for each club.
Next week Hearts will have played their 4th home league game this season shown live on tv.
It looks like the next Hearts V Hibs match won’t be shown because Sky will definitely show the Hearts V Sevco game after the split.



17 Jan 2022 15:22:37
Really looking forward to game tonight but a wee bit apprehensive on how we will get on.
How many of the new bhoys will play and will they settle right in to Scottish football.
Wee Maloney is a clever coach and I expect him to have Hibs tactically better, so I am expecting a hard game.
Also after the League Cup Final some Hibs players will be harbouring a grudge, so expect a lot of dodgy tackles and bookings.


1.) 17 Jan 2022 16:38:15
I agree Timalloy, there could be bookings, but how many fouls will the Hibs player be allowed, before they get booked, or in games against Celtic, not get booked, Opposition players can have a few kicks or punches, it seems to be the way referees are in Scotland against Celtic.

2.) 17 Jan 2022 17:18:11
Think hibs are missing a few times be fair, no excuse 3 points that's what it's about HH.

ED007 I read Celtic through their new Sports science guy have already teamed up with a company that are pioneering a new way of treating hamstring and other muscle related injuries by using a bi product of termeric the spice to reduce inflammation, honest this seems to work.


{Ed007's Note - Turmeric (the curcumin in it) has many properties that aid our health in general, Timbo, everything from heart disease to keeping your mind sharp.

Sorry guys McGregor injury down to Ange plain and simple no need to play him, same as playing Kyogo against Betis he makes some poor decisions.
Also once again our players seem to be scared of a plastic pitch, and our build up play so slow.
While I am having a moan, Scales is NOT Celtic class and Mc Carthy waste of a jersey, thank goodness big Hart was on his game or that could have been embarrassing.
No tonight Ange made a ba! s up of team selection.
